SO SAVOURY
Design & Branding Studio of Matt Gray

About

Hello and welcome to the design studio of Matt Gray – freelance designer, Londoner, thinker, story teller, illustrator, collaborator, typographer, screen printer, tea slurper, wanderer, bike-pedaller & sandwich-devourer.

How d'you do?

SO SAVOURY is a multi-disciplinary design and branding studio based in London and run by me, Matt Gray. If you'd like to work with me or want to enquire about freelance availability, please get in touch.

Every project is different. That’s why I like to keep my approach flexible, so whether I’m working with agencies, startups or more established brands, I can adapt accordingly. Specialising in packaging and building identities, I work with clients early on to help them define their brand from brief through to the final expression and beyond. I believe that a successful relationship is born out of collaboration and partnership — listening to my clients carefully to understand their objectives and audience. Regardless of what challenge I’m tackling, I offer solutions built on plain-spoken, ambitious ideas — always grounded in research and carefully crafted in their execution.

I also have a carefully selected network of expert individuals who I partner with to meet the specific needs of a project, including copywriters, photographers, animators, filmmakers and developers. This approach allows me to stay nimble whilst delivering top-notch creative.

What do I do?

BRAND IDENTITY
Naming, logotypes & brand marks, identity systems and brand guidelines.

VISUAL COMMUNICATION
Creative direction, art direction, campaigns, graphic design, illustration and type design.

PRINTED MEDIA
Packaging, book design, brochures, posters, flyers and stationery.

DIGITAL MEDIA
Website design, apps and UI design.
